The In-N-Out "Experience"

In-N-Out is one of our favorite fast food places to go eat. When you go to an In-N-Out for the first time, you might be disappointed at the menu choices - there really isn't much - a hamburger, a cheeseburger, or a double hamburger/cheeseburger. That's about it. So what's the big deal?! The food is amazing! Everything is fresh - cooked to order...and...for those in the "know" - you can order TONS of stuff "off menu". And...it's a Christian organization. On the bottom lip of every cup, there is a bible reference. Pretty cool, huh?

So what do I mean by "off the menu"? Here were our orders:

Mike:

double-double animal style; fries - animal style; milkshake - neapolitan

Mike's milkshake


Mike's burger


Our whole order - but you can see the animal style fries




Erin:

hamburger animal style minus cheese, chopped chilis, toasty buns; fries; lemon-up


Madison:
hamburger animal style minus cheese, toasty buns; fries well-done; choco-vanilla shake.

Madison's burger and "well done" fries



definition and description:

double-double - double hamburger, double cheese
animal style - mustard, grilled onions, cheese
well-done fries - you know those fries at the bottom of the fryer - a little more crispy? That's how all of your fries come
lemon-up - half lemonade/half seven up
shake - neapolitan - a swirl of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milkshake
chilis - chopped pepperoncini chilis
toasty buns - bun left on the grill a tiny bit longer to get it extra crispy

Bliss...

In-N-Out ROCKS!! Southerner's often carry on about Chick-fil-A but now that they've made it to California, I'm mostly underwhelmed.

There are two places I know of where In-N-Out and Chick-fil-A are right next to each other (or in one case just across the street from each other) and In-N-Out always gets my order unless their lines are crazy long. I guess that tells it all because their is never more than a couple of cars in the line at Chick-fil-A.

I know I'm strange but I don't like their fries. I push through and have double-double and usually a chocolate shake.

Enjoy all the wonderful food treats during your time in the States!
